On sluts and slatterns

Here is another attack on sl-words, a continuation of the one celebrated last week (“The sl-morass”). There, I mentioned the fact that a word beginning with sl– tends to develop negative connotations. My example was Engl. slim, as opposed to German schlimm “bad.” Another example (one of many!) is slight. In the Old Germanic languages, including Gothic, which was recorded in the fourth century, the word meant “smooth,” perhaps “slippery.” (Incidentally, to slip is also a verb of questionable ante...

How to Earn Bitcoin Through Blogging

Bitcoin and other forms of digital currency have become popular and widespread in the last few years. The draw of bitcoin is that it is decentralized and secure compared to traditional currency. Although many have seen it as very speculative, the financial industry has gone to great lengths to legitimatizing it as a currency with the CFTC even declaring it as a commodity that can be legally traded.

The ongoing significance of racism in American medicine

America’s healthcare system is considered by many the finest in the world, and the symbol of what America can achieve combining science and service. It’s also true that we spend 1/5 of our nation’s resources funding healthcare, so it’s certainly an institution that all Americans are deeply invested in. And still, the reality is that American medicine has never invested equally for black Americans and white Americans. Further, the medical system has always been fraught with outright abuse, experi...

What does the Bible say about immigration?

International (MNN) – Sometimes the political noise surrounding an issue becomes so loud that we pick a side without considering what the Bible has to say.

The Bible and Immigration Montgomery wants to remind college and university students of w...
